Hi Jithesh,
Skinlite cream contains tretinoin and mometasone apart from having hydroquinone. It is not good to use a moderately potent steroid for such a long term.
It is good that you have not developed any problem with it like acneiform eruptions, burning sensations on sun-exposure etc.
Start applying it on alternate night and then stop it, and avoid sun exposure by using goggles, wearing broad-brim hat, wrapping cloth over your face and also apply a good sunscreen.
